Things to do for March 27, 2008

The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

This weekend is not for fools.

Thursday
The Great Whiskey Debate at Elixir
THURSDAY DEBATES

The Great Whiskey Debate at Elixir

You might fancy yourself a connoisseur of bourbon and scotch until you witness a Master Ambassador go head-to-head against a Whiskey Professor (that's one academic title you probably could've worked towards). Admission includes four whiskies.

411: Mar 27, 9:30pm, Elixir, 332 16th St (at Guerrero), 415-621-8203, $20

Friday
The Suite Life at Morton's The Steakhouse
FRIDAY MADNESS

The Suite Life at Morton's The Steakhouse

Spare yourself the crowds at the pubs and reserve a private room at Morton's, complete with a nine-foot screen and signature menu options—because you deserve a good time, regardless of where your NCAA loyalties lie.

411: Morton's The Steakhouse, 400 Post St, 415-986-5830, or 177 Park Ave, San Jose, 408-947-7000

Saturday
Pebble Beach Food & Wine Grand Tasting
SATURDAY FEAST

Pebble Beach Food & Wine Grand Tasting

Some might call it a gorge fest; we'd like to think it's a more civilized tasting event. Either way, sampling upwards of 300 wines and food made by 16 world-class chefs is an undertaking we'll happily endure after playing 18 holes.

Saturday
World Wildlife Fund's Earth Hour
SATURDAY IN THE DARK

World Wildlife Fund's Earth Hour

Don't be alarmed, but at 8pm both bridges, Coit Tower and more landmarks will go dark for an hour to show solidarity against global warming (with 24 other cities worldwide). You can do the same at your place—with some wine, candles and your date.

411: 8-9pm, throughout the city

Sunday
Meatpaper's New Issue Party
SUNDAY FLEISCHGEIST

Meatpaper's New Issue Party

Celebrate this indie mag's third issue and read about Israel's covert pork market and meat styling (yes, meat needs to look good too) as you feed on meat washed down with rum, wine or beer.

411: Mar 30, 6-9pm, Serpentine, 2495 Third St, $10-15 (sliding scale)

Tuesday
Pranks Film Festival
TUESDAY FOOLS DAY

Pranks Film Festival

This inaugural film festival features shorts like 12 Hot Women and Zombie Vegetarians, which manage to make us feel intrigued, albeit prepared to be duped.

411: Apr 1-3, Roxie Cinema, 3117 16th St, 415-863-1087, $10
